OH my goodness David!
Requas are near and dear to my heart! My grandmother was a Requa. Delighted to meet a Requa relative! Hello there Cousin!

Hugs of appreciation for the transfers. I get them all linked up and have the appropriate dates and information with them.

I am perusing the baptism records trying to find the information on this William. I did find the baptismal records for three sisters but could not locate his. I wonder if he lived for less than a day and was not baptized.

Thanks again my new found cousin!

RE: Vincent Miedzinski
I did some research and found his name is William Vincent Miedzinski born 1869 in Poland, Immigration about 1885 to Baltimore, Maryland. 1910 Census lists his occupation as Oysterman. Naturalization was 01 MAY 1900. He died 14 MAY 1970. Married Frances Mary Pawloska (Pawloski) on 03 JUN 1898. Frances was born 26 OCT 1882 in Baltimore, Maryland and died 18 MAY 1953 in Baltimore, Maryland.

After their marriage, they moved to Kent County, Maryland and lived in a town called Rock Hall. They had 14 children. 6 were born in Rock Hall. In 1909 they moved to St. Mary's County, where the rest of their children were born.

Vincent was the youngest of several children, (possibly 9.) He had a sister named Ursula, a brother name Pete and may of had a brother named Joseph.

I suggested corrections to Peter and Thomas' Memorials, to link their parents.

RE: Agnes Clarke Shifflett
According to Mary Eva's obituary, she is the daughter of James Wilson Copsey and Cordelia Greenwell, and was the wife of Joseph Michael Miedzinski.

I did some research and found Agnes in the 1930 Census, listed as daughter in law, residing in Hillville, St. Mary's, Maryland.

I continued to dig and found both Mary Eva and Agnes in the 1920 Census with their father in Hillville, St. Mary's, Maryland.

James Wilsen Copsey Head M 37 Maryland
Minnie Copsey Wife F 34 Maryland
Mary Eva Copsey Daughter F 12 Maryland
William Loyd Copsey Son M 9 Maryland
Agnes Iver Copsey Daughter F 7 Maryland

So, it looks as though Mary Eva and Agnes were both married twice.

Furman Velson & Sailors' Snug Harbor Cemetery
I noticed that you had created a nice memorial for Furman Velsor, who is interred at the Sailors' Snug Harbor Cemetery. Are you a descendant of Furman? I'm also a descendant of a mariner who resided at Sailors' Snug Harbor and is interred at the SSH Cemetery. If you are interested in more information about recent efforts regarding the status of the SSH Cemetery and the SSH Records, you can contact me at the email address listed on my member name profile.

I don't know if you are the person who left the picture of the graves of my grandparents, but if you are, I greatly appreciate it. I had to call Holy Cross Cemetery to get the information but I didn't have a picture of the grave. It is wonderful to have this. We (my extended family) thank you.

Wm H. Gardiner #60365189
Hi David-

Thanks for posting burials in the Huntington Rural Cemetery for my Gardiner family! Are you from the Gardiners also - I am looking for new cousins.

Do you know if there is a listing of the burials in Huntington? I am looking for a source for the burials of the Gardiners there in Huntington Rural Cem. to add source documentation on my family.

I have been looking to prove two different William's but believe they may be the same William, who bounced back and forth from Suffolk and Rockland Counties of NY. The Burr family, who connect to Alma Burr (William Gardiner's mother) also resided in Rockland County, so I know he had ties there.

In 1947, an aunt wrote to the society and was given this information: William H. Gardiner died at the home of his brother Townsend, in Cold Spring Harbor on October 7, 1894. The society listed some current families living in Cold Harbor that may be descendants of the Gardiner Island family. William and Harvey, of whom my aunt was asking about, are believed to be William, who married Lavinia; and, Harvey is the brother (Harvey born 1840). We do know now, that William H. was her grandfather.

If you are a Gardiner desc, you know there may be many tangles. I would love to discuss them with you!

RE: Ida B. Sammis
Hi. It would be nice if they had spaces for more than one last name; however, their rules state to list it as it is listed on the headtone. In this case, it should be Sammis bc that i how it is listed on her headstone. (I uploaded picture.) I have seen people use a space in between two last names but hers would be three last names. She was Ida (Bunce) Sammis Woodruff Satchwell. That is actually how she is listed in wikipedia. She was known as Sammis, even after her remarriages bc of her political career (first of two women elected to NYS legislature). She has either a book or article published and used Sammis as her last name. It was many years after hubby #1 died.

Hi. I was at the Huntington Rural Cemetery and uploaded pics for several Sammis that you manage. Thought you would want to know. They can be found by looking at my virtual cemetery titled Photos Filled.

Wrong Parents for Joseph Perry Barber
I think you might have the wrong parents of "John Barber & Frances

Barker" for your "Joseph Perry Barber".

Our family member Barber was born in St Marys, Maryland about 1869-75

his birth dates are all over the place. All his life he went by the

name of "Joseph P. B. Barber" and Not (Joseph Perry Barber). You can

see this from the 1880 census with his parents,John Barber & Frances

Barker. 1880 census Home is in Mechanicsville, St Marys, Maryland.

The middle initial of (B) in his name i think stood for his mothers

maiden name of "Barker". From 1900 through 1940 censuses, Joseph P.

B. Barber his wife Annie S. and there only child "Willa L. Barber"

born 1910 District of Columbia, Washington, D.C. In all the censuses

he is listed as "Joseph P. B. Barber" even also in the Washington

D.C. Directories. His parents are buried at "All Faith Episcopal Church Cemetery" Mechanicsville, St. Mary's County Maryland.

The Cemetery you have is a mumber of miles south of Mechanicsville, at Joy Chapel Cemetery Hollywood, Md. There would be no reason for him to be buried at Joy Chapel Cemetery Hollywood, Md. When his parents are in "All Faith Episcopal Church Cemetery". From the 1900 census through the 1940 censuses the family live in Washington, D.C. and Not in Baltimore, Md.

His siblings were:
(Amelia G. Barber 1870-)
(Mary Frances Barber 1874-1880) Burial: All Faith Episcopal Church Cemetery.
(John Gwinn Barber 1876-1942) Burial: Congressional Cemetery Washington District of Columbia.
(William C. Barber 1879-1968) Burial: Congressional Cemetery Washington District of Columbia.

Do you know if all the readable graves at Sacred Heart Bushwood, St Marys County MD have been put into FindAGrave. I have some relatives we think are buried there, but not yet found on FG.
Do you know if the church has burial records?
